7 ministers fall as opposition overturns Zanu PF's majority in parliament

7 ministers fall as opposition overturns Zanu PF's majority in parliament: "ZANU PF lost control of Zimbabwe’s parliament on Wednesday in the biggest power shift since the country won independence from Britain in 1980.
Official figures showed the two rival Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) factions had won 105 seats in the 210 seat parliament, with one going to Professor Jonathan Moyo, an independent. Zanu PF was trailing on 94 with 10 more seats still at stake."
